- I am ready to actually get started on my kokoshnik but I have a
question first. The style is round with straight sides (think hat box
on the head) my base material is dupioni silk. Should I have
the "lines" in the silk run vertically from the brim to the top or
horizontally around my head? (...before I spend more hours than I want
to think about couching down more beads than I even want to count)
- Personally, I would have the lines run vertically. However, take a good
look at the silk in both directions, and see what you like better. You might
also take into account the design. You wouldn't want the fabric to detract
from all that wonderful pearling you are going to do.
